FICCI recently announced its annual healthcare conference – FICCI Heal 2020, from 29 September 2020 to 1 October 2020. The 14th edition of FICCI Heal on the theme, “Post-Covid Healthcare World – The New Beginning” is scheduled on a virtual platform and will include keynote addresses, panel discussions as well as plenary sessions covering the entire spectrum of healthcare- public health, care delivery, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, medical devices, integration of traditional medicine as well as digital health.
Speaking on the event, Dr Alok Roy, chair, FICCI Health Services Committee, and Chairman, Medica Group of Hospitals, said, “Covid-19 has highlighted the underlying inadequacies in our healthcare systems, specifically concerning an effective response to a pandemic. At the same time, it has opened up a plethora of opportunities for transforming our healthcare ecosystem to be future-ready. This calls for strengthening of stakeholder collaborations, rethinking of processes and policies, and adopting a more patient-centric as well as community-centric approach for healthcare delivery and we believe FICCI Heal 2020 will provide a perfect platform for that.”
Adding to this, Dr Harsh Mahajan, co-chair, FICCI Health Services Committee and founder and chief radiologist, Mahajan Imaging, said, “FICCI Heal 2020 is an endeavor to bring together all the relevant stakeholders to share their experiences and deliberate on the solutions and reforms for post-Covid healthcare. The conference would be a conglomeration of chief operating officers, policymakers, national and international leaders from healthcare and allied industries.”
The three-day-long event will have many insightful Business sessions on topics like Digital Revolution — Going Viral!; Changing landscape of Pharma Industry; Realizing Atmanirbhar Bharat through Make in India; Diagnostics- Pandemic & Beyond; Best Practices for Management of Covid-19; Home Healthcare; How the World will prepare for Post-Covid.
The scientific sessions will bring together top clinical experts from India and worldwide to share the latest data, experiences, exciting developments, and best research findings in the ongoing battle against Covid-19. Some of the sessions are- Private Healthcare at the forefront of battle with Covid-19: From Strategy to Frontline Trenches; Covid-19: Spectrum of clinical syndromes, complications; Therapies for Covid-19: Current therapies and their effectiveness; and more.
Continuing the long legacy of recognizing the best practices in the industry, FICCI is also organizing the 12th edition of its much-awaited ‘Healthcare Excellence Awards’, on September 29, 2020, from 11:30 am 12:15 pm on the Virtual Platform.
This year in the backdrop of the Covid pandemic and to recognize healthcare workers’ courage, specific categories have been introduced. These categories are designed to recognize the industry’s efforts in ensuring the delivery of quality healthcare to the patients.
FICCI, in partnership with Boston Consulting Group, has also undertaken a study to lay out the contours of the Open Digital Health Ecosystem as envisioned in the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) announced by the honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 15 August 2020. This report, titled, “Ushering in the Digital Era for Healthcare Delivery in India”, will be released during the Inaugural Session of the Conference.
In addition, FICCI is also organizing a Health Tech Innovation Bootcamp on Day 2 of the conference, that intends to bridge the existing gap between Indian Innovators and other key industry stakeholders by facilitating potential partnerships among them.
The registration for FICCI HEAL 2020 is now open.
